    I see the disappearance of Klinsmann these days, especially with the MLS all star game, very suspicious. I think Gulati advised him to disappear for few days until the storm passes. Probably, Gulati wanted to make this about Landon Donovan and not about Klinsmann. It's difficult to hide a huge elephant in a small room.
